At Tantara Farms in Springfield, Missouri, owner Clayton Lile and his father-in-law, Keith Williams, have curated nearly 50 infused balsamic vinegars and olive oils, plus organic spices and herbs, flavored sea salts and sugars, unique teas and house-roasted coffee.

The retail space is bright and organized, with handcrafted wood shelves and black accents. Sample any of the oils and vinegars before you buy; Lile and his team are happy to give recommendations.

Try the smoked balsamic vinegar, excellent on quinoa or grilled vegetables, or the Persian lime olive oil, which pairs perfectly with avocado, black beans or Southwest salads.
